Advanced Chiropractic Care Helps More Than a Painful Back

It is common to associate back pain with chiropractic treatments. Although chiropractic treatments do successfully help with back issues, it is important to understand that chiropractic care can provide many more benefits to you and your health.

Chronic Sinusitis

Chronic sinusitis occurs when the cavities around the nasal passages become inflamed. This is typically caused by a cold or allergies and results in facial pain, headache, runny nose and nasal congestion. But chiropractic care can help. Neck adjustments can relieve tension on your brain stem, allowing your throat to be more relaxed and your sinus passages to drain. When there is tension in your neck, that tension can restrict your sinus passages, causing all a lack of drainage and a build up of pressure.

Headaches

When your neck and back are tense, you feel stress all over your body. Most often, that stress manifests into a headache. Chiropractic adjustments or spinal manipulation can relieve your body of that stress. Chiropractors can manipulate the spine and neck so that tension is reduced, and so are your headaches. The great thing about visiting the chiropractor compared to other treatments is that chiropractic adjustments can provide relief that is long-lasting with simple, scheduled visits.

Athletic Performance

It’s no secret that many athletes choose to be under regular chiropractic care. Chiropractic treatments are extremely effective at boosting your immune system, decreasing stress, relieving muscle tension and therefore naturally increasing your energy level. Simply put, an adjustment can place your body in a natural position where it is prone to heal itself, freeing your immune system to focus on keeping you healthy, which results in a greater ability to focus, think and perform.

Sleep Better

Chiropractic adjustments relax your body and your mind, allowing you to rest more peacefully. Adjustments also improve the blood flow throughout the nervous system allowing oxygen to be carried more efficiently. Pain, whether it is acute or chronic, plays a big part in why some people experience interrupted sleep.
